Selma Café: March 27, 2009
75 diners had the “Selma experience” this Friday. That’s 20 more than last week’s record of 55. I believe that word is getting out — and fast! It’s been a great pleasure to introduce my friends to Selma. One confessed to me that she felt “awkward about just showing up at a stranger’s home for breakfast without an invitation.” Well, let me assure you: YOU ARE INVITED!
By the way, if you want to increase your chances of bumping into me at Selma, you should definitely not arrive too early. I usually show up at around 9am — after having risen at 5:30am sharp, milked the cows, run 10 miles, and discovered cures to one or more rare tropical diseases, mind you. (I’m no loafer.)

puts the finishing touches on the plates about to be served. The Spanish tortilla with chorizo was the favorite dish of the day.
The Selma store is stocked with local food goodness: jam, Lisa’s waffle mix, Lisa’s granola, yogurt made from Tantre Farms
raw milk, Jeff’s bread, RoosRoast coffee
, Arbor Teas
, and dried mushrooms.
Waffles are always the kids’ favorite, but I confess to kinda loving them too — I mean, I just cannot resist how beautiful they look. | Friends sitting next to me also found the waffles to be finger-lickin’ good (literally).
Jeff serves slices of his scrumptious home-cured prosciutto.
These boys (old friends of mine; we go way back) sure knew how to entertain themselves: “twittering” away on their Game Boys, and enjoying the Frida-beaded doorway.
Just some of the volunteer staff on Friday: guest-chef Aaron Lindell, Kat Hagedorn
, Aubrey Thomason, Jeff, Lisa, and Matt Burton. Shana Kimball, Garin Fons, and Eileen Quintero volunteered before I arrived.
